We’ve all done embarrassing, icky things when we were kids, but the great thing about not being famous is your siblings can never rat you out during a televised talk show. Maybe Chris and Scott Evans should have thought about that before they decided to pursue their dreams in Hollywood, because now all the nasty, unseemly incidents and pranks from their childhood are coming out, no filter.
Monday night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on CTV2), Jimmy’s guest was Captain America himself Chris Evans, whom he surprised by having his brother Scott on the couch too. The Evans boys then willingly participated in the second installment of “Know Your Bro”—the game specially designed to get two embarrassing stories for the price of one. Jimmy had one brother wear noise-cancelling headphones while the other answered questions and then we all see if they match up once the headphones come off.
The first few questions were pretty innocent, and the bros’ cute Boston accents poked through as they relived some twee childhood moments. Chris answered correctly that Scott would be doing “something with police work” if he wasn’t an actor, with Scott adding once he could hear again, “I don’t know why I’m so into murder.”
You know what, Scott? Those skills learned from logging hours of crime drama on TV might just come in handy, because Chris is about to butcher you with embarrassment.
Jimmy probably didn’t realize just what he was getting into when he put this question to Chris, “What is Scott’s most embarrassing childhood memory?” To everyone’s horror and amazement, Captain America proceeded to tell an incredibly humiliating and disgusting story about a young Scott Evans—who, lets’ not forget, is one of the hunkiest actors working today—involving not one, not two, but THREE pants-pooping incidents.
Basically, as Chris explained, “Scott had bowel-control issues” and once on a skiing trip in New Hampshire, a five-year-old Scott proceeded to poop his pants three times throughout the day, eventually forcing the family—that is, Chris, his sister and his dad—to pack up and go home. A devastating tale, if you ask us and even more devastating when your brother tells it like the incredible actor/storyteller he is while you sit next to him jamming out to whatever bops are on Jimmy Fallon’s iPod.
That’s all terrible, but the worst part? That’s not even the story Scott told once the headphones came off. Instead of confirming that the ski story was his most embarrassing childhood memory, Scott told a completely different tale about—you guessed it—pooping his pants. The second-hand embarrassment is too real.
We can’t imagine how the Evans parents dealt with this? Y’all are saints.
Luckily, that’s all in the past and Scott and Chris Evans are both happily working in Hollywood with full control of their bowels today. Just . . . maybe guard your secrets around them.
